Unusual Animal Behavior - In 1920, the largest earthquake to hit China with a magnitude of 8.5 occurred in Haiyuan County, Ninghxia Province. According to reports of eyewitnesses, prior to this earthquake, wolves were seen running around in packs, dogs were barking unusually, and sparrows were flying around wildly. It is reported that prior to the 6.8 magnitude earthquake in 1966 in Hsingtai County, Hopei Province, in Northern China, all the dogs at a village near the epicenter had deserted their kennels and thus survived the disaster.

Prior to the earthquake of July 18, 1969, (magnitude 7.4) in the Pohai Sea, unusual behavior was observed in seagulls, sharks, and five different species of fish. Based on observations of unusual behavior of giant pandas, deer, yaks, loaches, tigers and other animals, a warning was issued at the Tientsin People's Park Zoo, two hours before the earthquake struck.

The Chinese began to study systematically the unusual animal behavior, and the Haicheng earthquake of February 1975 was predicted successfully as early as in mid-December of 1974. The most unusual circumstance of animal behavior was that of snakes that came out of hibernation and froze on the surface of the earth. Also a group of rats appeared. These events were succeeded by a swarm of earthquakes at the end of December 1974. During the following month, in January 1975, thousands of reports of unusual animal behavior were received from the general area. Local people saw hibernating snakes coming out from their holes
and into the snow. In the first three days in February the activity intensified even more and unusual behavior of the larger animals such as cows, horses, dogs and pigs was reported. On February 4, 1975, an earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck the Haicheng County, Liaoning Province.

More instances of unusual animal behavior were reported. A stock breeder in northern China, feeding his animals before dawn on July 28, 1976, in the area of the Kaokechuang People's Commune, approximately 40 kilometers away from the city of Tangshan, reported that his horses and mules instead of eating were jumping and kicking until they finally broke loose and ran outside. A few seconds later, a dazzling white flash illuminated the sky. Tremendous rumbling noises were heard as a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck the Tangshan area.

Other reports of unusual animal behavior prior to the occurrence of earthquakes have been reported in the literature and in books. Such unusual animal behavior included goats refusing to go into pens; cats and dogs picking up their offspring and carrying them outdoors; pigs squealing strangely; chickens dashing out of the coops in the middle of the night; fish dashing about aimlessly; and birds leaving their nests. It has also been reported that zoo animals refused to go back into their shelters at night; snakes, lizards and other small mammals evacuated their underground nests; insects congregated in huge swarms near the seashores; cattle sought higher ground; domestic animals became agitated; and wild birds left their usual habitats.

Surveys done in China show that the largest number of cases of unusual animal behavior precede the earthquake, particularly in the 24 hours before it strikes. In other parts of China where major earthquakes have been preceded by foreshocks, unusual behavior in rats, fish, and snakes were observed as early as three days prior to the earthquake, but continuing to several hours, or even a few minutes before.

Studies of Animal Behavior
Throughout China's long history, unusual behavior has been observed in every kind of common animal. Most of the behavior falls into the category of unusual restlessness and disorientation.

Since animals have the capability of acting as predictors of earthquakes, the Chinese scientists have carried out surveys of animal behavior variations prior to earthquakes. A team of scientists including biologists, geophysicists, chemists, meteorologists, and biophysicists conducted a survey in the Tangshan area and in 400 communes in 48 counties around it after the 1976 earthquake. The scientists visited a number of places that were hit by other destructive earthquakes and, through interviews and discussions with local people, collected information on over 2,000 cases of unusual animal behavior occurring prior to an earthquake. The majority of the reports involved domestic animals. Based on this survey a preliminary report was prepared by the Chinese identifying 58 kinds of domestic and wild animals that had demonstrated unusual behavior.


The principal focus of research work in China has been on the behavior of pigeons. Biological studies on pigeons determined that a hundred tiny units exist between the tibia and fibula on a pigeon's leg. These nerve units are connected to the nerve center, and are very sensitive to vibrations. Scientists determined that prior to an earthquake of magnitude 4.0, which occurred in the area of the study, fifty pigeons that had severed connections between the tibia, fibula, and the nerve centers, remained calm before the earthquake, while those with normal connections became startled and flew away.


Because of the success in monitoring unusual animal behavior for the prediction of certain earthquakes, the Chinese, who have pioneered this work, have looked into ways to construct instruments that would duplicate the sensory organs of animals which were able to monitor, and sense, stimuli preceding an earthquake. Researchers found it very difficult to understand the mechanism of response stimuli. Physical or chemical stimuli come out of the earth prior to an earthquake and these must be the stimuli that animals can sense. For example, dogs may be able to hear the microfacturing of rocks a few milliseconds before a quake shock reaches the surface. Electromagnetic changes in the earth prior to an earthquake may be sensed by such animals as sharks and catfish which have low or high frequency receptors and sense such changes actively or passively. Also such electromagnetic field changes could be affecting migrating birds and the navigational ability of fish.

Mechanisms of Animal Responses
What is the sensory mechanism of animals that controls their responses to changes related to an impending earthquake? As mentioned earlier, the behavior of an animal might be subject to changes in the magnetic field preceding a major earthquake and such changes may be sensed by energy transfer at the electron level which, in turn, cause changes in the cellular behavior, or response. The living cell is essentially an electrical device and a micromolecular structure, and the sensory organs are all interconnected. Electromechanic changes occurring prior to the occurrence of a large earthquake may be sensed by certain animals and filtered, then instinctively interpreted. Thus animals may have the means and sensitivity to sort out and discriminate the threatening precursory signals of an impending earthquake, thus activating a behavior pattern for survival.

These precursory electromagnetic or electromechanic changes which precede an earthquake, although mixed with background noise, must be filtered by animals and coordinated through their sensory response to the total environment. Thus, behavior is determined by the sensitivity of the different component parts of the living system to the surrounding medium. Experiments with new instruments and electronic solid state sensors are being used now to determine animal response to impending catastrophic occurrences.


The benefit from such research would be in duplicating the sensory responses of animals to construct equally responsive instruments that can record or monitor these precursory changes. Thus, observing and studying animal behavior could lead to better earthquake prediction instrumentation.

Gastric acid (heartburn), and what to do.

Gastric acid:

Drink some Camomile-tea,
drink milk,
or a little vinegar,
chew basil-leaves,
eat a teaspoon of sugar,
or eat a pickle.

You just have to find out which works best for YOU.

When it occures during the night, it might help to lie on your left side...

Relex point stomach,
use your nail or a pencil and press for about 15 seconds.
Drink some lukewarm water or tea,
a piece of dark chocolate might well absorb the acids...hmmm.



Cucumber and ginger are well know for their relieving ingrediënts,

The healing power of : Kiwi (10)


Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene.

Studies in Italy, though, performed on 6-7 year old children, have also demonstrated additional health benefits to the respiratory tract. In particular, children that were fed 5-7 portions a week of citrus and kiwifruits had 44% less probability wheezing compared to children eating less than once a week.
Shortness of breath was reduced by 32%,night time cough by 27%, severe wheeze by 41%, chronic cough by 25%, and runny nose by 28%. This results is not only traceable to the content in Vitamin C or Potassium, but in substances which are still largely unknown contained in kiwi fruit.
These substances are most likely flavonoids that help protect our cells from oxidative damage, and are therefore considered very helpful in protecting our DNA from mutations and damage.

Protection from Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD)

A series of studies published by the Archives of Ophthalmology have proven that consuming 3 or more servings of fruit per day (including kiwi fruits) can reduce by 36% the risk of developing an eye-related disease called ARMD (the primary cause of vision impairment in adults), if compared to people who only consume 1.5 servings of fruit per day.
The study was conducted on 110.000 women and men and lasted several decades. Surprisingly, the study found that while vegetables were not correlated with an improved resistance to the disease, fruits containing high amount of Vitamin C,A and E (the most common antioxidant vitamins) helped significantly in protecting against ARMD.

Anti Oxidant properties of Kiwi Fruit

It is important to note that kiwi fruits contain a remarkable amount of Vitamin C, E and A. Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that has been proven to protect our body from free radicals, dramatically improving the health of individuals who consumed it regularly against all kinds of disease, from cardiovascular problems to cancer and obesity.
Vitamin E has been proven to have similar effects, but is fat-soluble and thus is complimentary to Vitamin C in its functions. Kiwi fruits contain both these vitamins in high amount, which help protect our body against free radicals from all fronts.

Kiwi fruits have a high fiber content

The high content in dietary fiber helps improving diseases such as diabetes, by controlling sugar levels, and colon cancer, since fiber binds to toxic compounds in the colon and helps us expel them.
Fiber has also been proven to reduce cholesterol levels, improving the conditions of patients with cardiovascular diseases and lowering the probability of heart attacks.

Summary of Kiwifruit Health Benefits

Eating kiwi fruit is clearly a healthy choice, and it is particularly useful in these cases:
  • Prevents Asthma
  • Prevents wheezing and coughing, especially in children
  • Protects our DNA from mutations
  • Provides a healthy amount of antioxidants and vitamins
  • Helps prevent colon cancer thanks to a high fiber

    Hernia, nucleus pulposus - HNP, discopathy and what to do...



    Alternative healing of discopathy of the intervertebral disc

    One of the main causes of back pains is discopathy or the intervertebral disc disease. Over the time, it undergoes certain degenerative changes. The blood vessels in the annulus fibrosus comprising the nucleus pulposus disappear. What is left are empty canals. The degree of its hydration decreases, which brings about a drop in its elasticity. A spine overload causes a dislocation of the nucleus pulposus into the canals in the annulus fibrosus. The nuclear tissue located in the center of the disc can be placed under so much pressure that it can cause the annulus to herniate or rupture



    The places of reduces resistance might be gates through which fragments of the" disc's" nucleus pulposus will indent into the vertebral canals, and cause a compression of the nerve structures. The process is chronic in its character, and its course depends on individual and changeable, genetic and constitutional factors as well as the patient's mode of life.
    In the lumbar part of the spine, the aforesaid changes usually refer to the intervertebral discs located between the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebra (L-4-L-5) as well as the 5th lumbar vertebra and the sacral bone (L5-S1).

    Symptoms

    In most cases "lumbar discopathy" reveals itself with pains located in the lumbo-sacral part of the spine radiating to one or both lower limbs. The pains are caused by pressure on the nerve roots, being a constituent of the ischiadic nerve (sciatic neuralgia).
    A precise location of the pain depends on which nerve roots in the vertebral canal are particularly pressed by the protruding fragments of the "disc". In more advanced cases, chronic compression causes disorders in the blood supply to the nerve root, which may even lead to its necrobiosis. It manifests itself in the lower limbs paralysis (numbness, reduction of the muscular strength, muscular atrophy or dropping foot). In extreme cases difficulties with miction or bowel movements may appear.
    In my case it certainly effects the intestines and urine-bladder, due to contractions of the internal muscles during the pain-attack.

    Regular Treatment

    Untreated disease progresses, which is related to the development of degenerative changes and their spreading to the neighboring intervertebral areas or other sections of the spine. On the other hand, its treatment is also difficult as there is no "golden means" or a single method that would guarantee complete recovery. In most cases conservative therapy (physiotherapy, rehabilitation, pharmacotherapy) is applied to patients suffering from "low back pains" . Such a treatment aims at decreasing the pains without eliminating the cause, namely the compression of the nerve structures brought about by the dislocated fragments of the intervertebral disc. It has, however, a great disadvantage as all analgesics take regularly damage the organism ( the stomach, liver, kidneys ). An absolute indication for a surgical procedure are symptoms of a neurological deficit which indicate an injury of the nervous system. It is often very difficult for the patient to decide on the neurosurgical treatment as it is the spine which is to be operated on. Therefore the use of minimally invasive procedures such as percutaneous laser disc decompression, intradiscal electrothermal therapy or endoscopic microdiscetomy may be of great advantage here.

    Providing all necessary conditions are met, each of the aforesaid methods is characterized by enormous therapeutic efficacy.


    Alternative treatment.
    I'm suffering a HNP for many years already, it strikes all of a sudden when I bend down or make a wrong move. Even a sneeze can trigger a painful situation. I 'experienced' many therapies through the years. The best way to help your back is to practice your 'sixpack'. That'll help to keep the vertebrae stable. I learned that Acupuncture kills the pain effectively and made me move again, but it doesn't cure the injured disk instantly, so be careful not to overdo your training after an Acu-healing...
    Good food, no alcohol and no tobacco will help you to recover faster.
    ...pain exists to warn you there's something wrong ! Give the disk it's time to recover , move, and keep it warm.
    The best therapy however I found was in The Philippines when a 'hilot' opened my eyes to see his miracles. Andy Fajardo started to massage and 'pressure point' my calves so intensively it made me shout'n out loud (SOL). That hurt like hell... that hurt more than my backpain, I tell you. I didn't feel my back anymore . And when he stopped the massage, my calves were 'tender' and the pain bearable but I still didn't feel my backpain anymore...
    I've practiced this therapy on many of my backpain-patients, with great result I may say. So my advice to you when you're suffering a lower-back pain:
    Have someone pressure-point your calves...it'll help.
    Because of the tension built up in the lowerback mucles, it shuts off the nerves that controle the inner organs like the Large Intestine and Urine Bladder. You probably noticed your dumps weren't compact anymore but thin.. The reflexpoints in your calfs also link to these organs and will activate them to get back to work.
    It's OK to massage the Lumbal area to straighten up the muscles and to help increase blood circulation .
    The muscles between the shoulder blades need to be softend as well.
    Massaging reflex-points on the hands and feet are recommended.
    This old note of mine shows to reflexpoints to backpain, it advices to treat the 'kidney meridian' 1/6 , but go as far as #10...!.
    The lowest point on the wrist can be massaged but:
    never burn Moxa on this spot.!!

    (Low) back pain,
    pressure all dots. Manual, pencil..)


    Kidney meridian, use the points 1/10.


    A straight position of the spine is very important during the healing process so the nucleus can settle to the centre of the disk. Always contract the abdominal muscles when lifting or sneezing.....


    Ear points to HNP:
    click to enlarge
    (43-45-55)
    It's easy to find these points yourself, a mirror will be of a great help...Press with a fingernail in that area and they'll show up, you'll feel them. Be careful with pointy objects like pencils or pens. When you're not that handy, ask someone to assist you.

    Spine at the backside.


    (133-135-136)


    Korean Reflexpoints hands.
    The middlefinger, from nail to wrist is a projection of the spine. Notice all meridians have a link to this area...!
    Massage this 'spine'. and concentrate on the area that links to your pain.



    With the thumb of your other hand you massage the inside hand where kidneys, bladder and intestines are projected. When your thumbs aren't that strong, make a fist and use the knuckels.

    According to this projection the center phalange of the little finger and the thumb correspond with your calfs reflexpoints !!!
      Massage these area....


    Footreflex


    The purple arch from heel to big toe corresponds to the spine.


    Don't sit down on cold objects like rocks or stone edges, wear a long shirt down the waist into y're pants, keep your back warm, use a strong showerhead to massage...

    The healing power of : Celery (9)

    Celery, you need to use this in your kitchen.


    -->

     (original post see Celery )


     Celery is from the same family with parsley and fennel, the Umbelliferae family. It can grow to the height of up to 16 inches. The white celery is grown shaded from direct sunlight, thus has less chlorophyll, compared to its greener counterparts.
    The ribs of celery are crunchy and are often used to make soup or salad. It has a salty taste, so celery juice is a good mix with the sweeter fruit juices. Depending on variety, some may taste very salty.
    Nutritional Benefits
    Celery leaves has high content of vitamin A, whilst the stems are an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C with rich supplies of potassium, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, sodium and plenty essential amino acids.
    Nutrients in the fiber are released during juicing, aiding bowel movements. The natural organic sodium (salt) in celery is very safe for consumption, in fact is essential for the body. Even individuals who are salt-sensitive can safely take the sodium in celery, unlike table salt (iodised sodium) which is harmful for those with high blood pressure.
    While many foods lose nutrients during cooking, most of the compounds in celery hold up well during cooking.
    Health Benefits
    Celery has always been associated with lowering of blood pressure. When combined with other juices, it provides different formula that help other conditions.
    Recent studies have shown that celery might also be effective in combating cancer. Read on.
    Some of the health benefits of celery juice:
    Acidity: The important minerals in this magical juice effectively balance the body's blood pH, neutralizing acidity.
    Athletes: Celery juice acts as the perfect post-workout tonic as it replaces lost electrolytes and rehydrates the body with its rich minerals.
    Cancer: Celery is known to contain at least eight families of anti-cancer compounds. Among them are the acetylenics that have been shown to stop the growth of tumor cells. Phenolic acids which block the action of prostaglandins that encourage the growth of tumor cells. And coumarins which help prevent free radicals from damaging cells.
    Cholesterol: This humble pale juice has been shown to effectively and significantly lower total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol.
    Colon and stomach cancer: The phytochemical coumarins prevent the formation and development of the colon and stomach cancers.
    Constipation: The natural laxative effect of celery helps to relieve constipation. It also helps relax nerves that have been overworked by man-made laxatives.
    Cooling: During dry and hot weather, drink a glass of celery juice two or three times a day, between meals. It wonderfully helps to normalize body temperature.
    Diuretic: The potassium and sodium in celery juice helps to regulate body fluid and stimulate urine production, making it an important help to rid the body of excess fluid.
    Inflammation: The polyacetylene in celery is an amazing relief for all inflammation like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, asthma and bronchitis.
    Kidney function: Celery promotes healthy and normal kidney function by aiding elimination of toxins from the body. While eliminating toxins, it also prevents formation of kidney stones.
    Lower blood pressure: Drinking celery juice every day for a week significantly helps lower blood pressure. A compound called phtalides help relax the muscle around arteries, dilating the vessels and allowing blood to flow normally. To be effective, drink the juice for one week, stop for three weeks, and start over.
    Nervous system: The organic alkaline minerals in celery juice has a calming effect on the nervous system, making it a wonderful drink for insomniacs.
    Weight loss: Drink celery juice frequently throughout the day. It helps curb your cravings for sweets and rich food.
    Urinary stones, breaking of: The diuretic effect of celery juice also aids the breaking and elimination of urinary and gall bladder stones.
    You can expect many more healing benefits from celery juice as you consume its natural sodium. Read how our body lacks and have been deprived of, natural salt.
    Consumption Tips
    Choose green celery where possible for its chlorophyll. Ensure that the ribs are still firm, not limp. To store in the fridge, wrap celery in a sealed container or wrap in a plastic bag or a damp cloth.
    Do not leave it at room temperature for too long as it tends to wilt quickly. If your celery has wilted, sprinkle it with a little water and put it in the refrigerator for a few hours. It will regain its crispness.
    Caution
    Celery is such a succulent plant that it produces its own "pesticide" to protect itself from fungi. This protective layer is called psoralens which although protects the celery, may not go down so well with some people.
    If you begin having skin problems after eating celery, it might mean that you have some sensitivity to psoralens.
    Some people with low blood pressure had complained that celery makes their blood pressure even lower. I personally didn't encounter that problem so I believe it is also your overall make-up. But, you might want to avoid celery if you have low blood pressure. Listen to your body when you take celery.
    Good appetite, Bert.

    The healing power of : Onions(8).

    Onions are Beneficial for Your Health

    The onion, very often a ingredient in many a kitchen, but did you have any idea how healthy this food is ??


    What would life be like without onions? The onion has been used as an ingredient in various dishes for thousands of years by many cultures around the world. World onion production is steadily increasing so that onion is now the second most important horticultural crop after tomatoes.

    There are many different varieties of onion, red, yellow, white, and green, each with their own unique flavor, from very strong to mildly sweet. Onions can be eaten raw, cooked, fried, dried or roasted. They are commonly used to flavor dips, salads, soups, spreads, stir-fry and other dishes.

    Onions (Allium cepa) belong to the lily family, the same family as garlic, leeks, chives, scallions and shallots.There are over 600 species of Allium, distributed all over Europe, North America, Northern Africa and Asia. The plants can be used as ornamentals, vegetables, spices, or as medicine. There are over 120 different documented uses of the Alliums.

    Onion and other Allium vegetables are characterized by their rich content of thiosulfinates, sulfides, sulfoxides, and other odoriferous sulfur compounds. The cysteine sulfoxides are primarily responsible for the onion flavor and produce the eye-irritating compounds that induce lacrimation. The thiosulfinates exhibit antimicrobial properties. Onion is effective against many bacteria including Bacillus subtilis, Salmonella, and E. coli. Onion is not as potent as garlic since the sulfur compounds in onion are only about one-quarter the level found in garlic.

    The Value of Onions

    Onions have a variety of medicinal effects. Early American settlers used wild onions to treat colds, coughs, and asthma, and to repel insects. In Chinese medicine, onions have been used to treat angina, coughs, bacterial infections, and breathing problems.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) supports the use of onions for the treatment of poor appetite and to prevent atherosclerosis. In addition, onion extracts are recognized by WHO for providing relief in the treatment of coughs and colds, asthma and bronchitis. Onions are known to decrease bronchial spasms. An onion extract was found to decrease allergy-induced bronchial constriction in asthma patients.

    Onions are a very rich source of fructo-oligosaccharides.

    These oligomers stimulate the growth of healthy bifidobacteria and suppress the growth of potentially harmful bacteria in the colon. In addition, they can reduce the risk of tumors developing in the colon.

    Cardiovascular Help

    Onions contain a number of sulfides similar to those found in garlic which may lower blood lipids and blood pressure. In India, communities that never consumed onions or garlic had blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels substantially higher, and blood clotting times shorter, than the communities that ate liberal amounts of garlic and onions. Onions are a rich source of flavonoids, substances known to provide protection against cardiovascular disease. Onions are also natural anticlotting agents since they possess substances with fibrinolytic activity and can suppress platelet-clumping. The anticlotting effect of onions closely correlates with their sulfur content.

    Cancer Prevention

    Onion extracts, rich in a variety of sulfides, provide some protection against tumor growth. In central Georgia where Vidalia onions are grown, mortality rates from stomach cancer are about one-half the average level for the United States. Studies in Greece have shown a high consumption of onions, garlic and other allium herbs to be protective against stomach cancer.

    Chinese with the highest intake of onions, garlic, and other Allium vegetables have a risk of stomach cancer 40 percent less than those with the lowest intake. Elderly Dutch men and women with the highest onion consumption (at least one-half onion/day) had one-half the level of stomach cancer compared with those consuming no onions at all.

    Western Yellow, New York Bold, and Northern Red onions have the richest concentration of flavonoids and phenolics, providing them with the greatest antioxidant and anti-proliferative activity of 10 onions tested. The mild-tasting Western White and Vidalia onions had the lowest antioxidant content and lowest anti-proliferative activity. The consumer trend to increasingly purchase the less pungent, milder onion varieties may not be the best, since the onions with a stronger flavor and higher astringency appear to have superior health-promoting properties.

    Use and Safety

    Onions have a universal appeal. They are safely consumed by most people. However, consuming large quantities of onions can lead to stomach distress and gastrointestinal irritation that may result in nausea and diarrhea. There are no known interactions with drugs except that they can potentiate the action of anticoagulants.

    Conclusion

    Onions, and other Allium species, are highly valued herbs possessing culinary and medicinal value. Some of their beneficial properties are seen after long-term usage. Onion may be a useful herb for the prevention of cardiovascular disease, especially since they diminish the risk of blood clots. Onion also protects against stomach and other cancers, as well as protecting against certain infections. Onion can improve lung function, especially in asthmatics. The more pungent varieties of onion appear to possess the greatest concentration of health-promoting phytochemicals.

    Author: Winston Craig, MPH, PhD, RD.


    In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that
    visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.
    Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.
    The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was
    very healthy.
    When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different
    the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the
    rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The doctor
    couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and
    placed it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did
    this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed
    the virus, therefore, keeping the family healthy. Now, I heard this
    story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several
    years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so
    were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls
    with onions around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff
    got sick. It must work.. (And no, she is not in the onion
    business.)
    The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls
    around your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your
    office or under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see
    what happens. We did it last year and we never got the flu.
